When you want a quick bowl of oatmeal, why not cook it right in the bowl you're going to eat it out of? Why scrub pots and pans when you don't have to? Of course, there are times when you want to set an elegant table with fine china and some of the manufacturers listed here also offer lines of gold or platinum trimmed fine china, which of course, is not safe for use in the microwave.
